We will leave Lençóis in the morning towards the foot of Morro do Pai Inácio, where the trail begins. We will walk for 9 km inside the Serra do Sincorá, which encompasses several hills that make up the beautiful scenery of Chapada Diamantina in a quiet trail, despite the long distance. After arriving at Águas Claras and cooling off in the crystal clear waters of the river and enjoying a delicious snack, we will follow the trail ahead, towards Vale do Capão, where we will spend the night.
The next day, from Vale do Capão, we will start a 6 km hike to the top of Cachoeira da Fumaça, one of the highest in Brazil, with about 380 meters of free fall. Due to the size of the fall, the water returns upwards before touching the ground, a rare phenomenon that generates a fine mist, constantly forming a rainbow in the lush landscape. Upon returning, we will pass by Cachoeira do Riachinho and from there we will return to Lençóis.

- What Will You DoDay 1
We left Lençóis by car to Morro do Pai Inácio and from there we walked Serra do Sincorá for about 9 km, on one of the most beautiful landscape and vegetation trails in the region. The trail, which is wide open, asks for a hat and sunscreen. The most stunning are the beautiful views of Pai Inácio from different angles, Morrão, on whose slopes comes one of the springs of the Mucugezinho River, Serra dos Cristais, Sobradinho, Morro do Camelo, and Serra da Cravada and Mucugêzinho. The first view is of the Três Irmãos, a beautiful view of a sequence of 3 mountains, the last of which is Morrão, over 1,400 meters high, one of the most famous attractions of Chapada Diamantina.
When we arrive at Águas Claras, a river with natural pools of crystalline waters, without the reddish color characteristic of the Chapada waters, we will enjoy moments deserved of refreshing bath and rest and then continue the 8 km trail towards Vale do Capão, where we will spend the night enjoying the city and resting for the next day.
On the second day, in Vale do Capão, we will start a 6 km hike to the top of Cachoeira da Fumaça, one of the highest in Brazil with about 380 meters of free fall. The first km is uphill and after this stage, a light and flat trail. During the walk, we will have privileged views of Vale do Capão and Morrão.
Because it is such a high waterfall, the water cannot reach the ground. Sometimes the water comes back up before touching the ground, a rare phenomenon that generates a fine mist, constantly forming a rainbow in the lush landscape.
When we return, in addition to the panoramic view to Morrão, we will have an invigorating bath in the waters of Cachoeira do Riachinho and already quite relaxed, we return by car along the same path to the car that will take us to Lençóis.
